Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
New York, New York

Applications are invited for a faculty appointment in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. We seek a colleague who will build a program of independent research in cancer epidemiology in a multidisciplinary collaborative environment located in a major academic cancer center.

The MSK environment encourages and provides unparalleled opportunities for fostering multi-disciplinary collaborations with clinicians, geneticists, pathologists, biostatisticians, cancer biologists and others involved in cancer research as well as patient care. Our large patient population, coupled with the extensive core facilities and distinguished research tradition provides exciting opportunities and a dynamic environment for the creation of an independent research program in epidemiology. Unique features of the institution include access to considerable numbers of rare cancer types, patients with double malignancies or other known genetic syndromes, rapid availability of large populations of patients with more common types of cancer and access to somatic genotyping of >40,000 cases profiled with the MSK-IMPACT panel. There are also numerous opportunities to build upon and expand existing on-going epidemiologic investigations. Our ideal candidate will take advantage of these institutional opportunities.
